Private property rights and freedom to own businesses apart from government control is exactly why we enjoy the greatest level of prosperity known in the history of the world.
Of course, over the past 90 years or so the nation has slowly migrated toward big government that today is administering a number of programs once foreign to the whole concept of government in America. The result is not a happy one: soaring national debt; growing dependence on government; a bloated federal bureaucracy; oppressive regulations; and taxation aimed at taking from one segment of the population and giving it to another.
